For those practicing outpatient IM, what the is the usual age limit at which you will not see a patient? I've seen internists see patients as young as 12-14 and others who draw a hard line at 18. I was wondering if there is a general consensus on this. It doesn't appear that the ACP or ABIM have any firm guidelines on this, or at least not that I could find. I also wasn't sure if there was a malpractice coverage issue.
